I understand that there is no proof at this point that Marty James has actually committed a murder, but there must be some type of steps taken to prevent this man from continuing his mission of mercy ("Deliver Them From AIDS" by Stephen Braun, Aug. 28). AIDS has devastated enough of us emotionally already. Not only are we having to deal with this disease and death on almost a daily basis, but now we have to protect our loved ones and friends from people like Marty James, and we should not have to. I sympathize with James and his condition.

When Marybeth Bizjak moved from the San Francisco Chronicle to the Sacramento Union as feature editor a year ago, she thought she was supposed to "liven up the features--to put a little punch into that part of the paper." But 10 weeks later she was out of a job after running a story on the AIDS Memorial Quilt--a series of panels dedicated to those who have died of AIDS that has been traveling around the country. "My editor told me, 'You don't understand.

The owners of Orange County Business First consented Wednesday to the liquidation of the bankrupt newspaper, acknowledging it was unable to work out a sale agreement for court approval. U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge John J. Wilson ordered the liquidation because the paper's owners, an Irvine partnership called Orange County Businessweek, has not been paying off old debts, continues to lose money and has not filed a sufficient reorganization plan. The liquidation, which involves the sale of all assets to pay off creditors, means the loss of jobs for nearly a dozen employees of the weekly publication.
